How is everyone? Fine, I hope. I missed posting last night due to extreme weather in my neck of the woods! We had a tornado warning for about two hours and then it poured down raining for a very long time. I got home just before all of this started. I am very thankful to God that my family and I are safe. During times like these, all you can do is begin to make dhikr and that is what I did along with dua' for our safety.
I realize this is the time of year for tornadoes/thunderstorms/hail and all that but I don't recall it ever being so severe. I certainly believe the Lord is trying to tell us something with all of these natural disasters lately. We need to focus on what is real, remain focused on the prize and put all of our childish ways aside. There is nothing like treacherous weather to get me back in focus...what about you?
May Allah strengthen our iman and keep us on the straight path. It does seem we are living in the last days and I pray that the weaknesses I possess are corrected and I can be of assistance to all who I come in contact with. Ameen.
Now, I have gotten some comments from sisters who are interested in starting a "Biggest Loser" type of activity on our blog. Please leave a comment on here if you are interested and we will try to begin in July. Below, you will find some things I would like to do to get this thing started!
- Weigh in
- Set small term goal
- Together, determine a way that we will treat ourselves and each other online when we reach our goal
- Share why we want to lose our weight
- Share ideas on how to lose our weight
- Share good, healthy recipes and other things that have worked in the past
- Be a support system for each other when we are feeling good and bad
- Share weekly progress
Until next time,
Live, laugh, love
